Since 2004, Get On Board has offered the most comprehensive board service training program available in Kentucky.
Get On Board hosted its inaugural class at United Way of the Bluegrass. Trainees began taking the first steps to become trained, informed and active board members for Central Kentucky nonprofits. Get On Board continues to be an initiative to strengthen the community through the cultivation of a widely diverse pool of candidates for greater nonprofit governing board effectiveness. The program transitioned to an entirely Plantory-run program in 2016.
In 2019, an advisory committee, comprised of recent Get On Board graduates and seasoned nonprofit board members, was created to organize the 2020 Get On Board session. Beginning on February 3rd, a new group of Get On Board participants will meet weekly, on Monday evenings, 6 PM - 8 PM, at The Plantory. Over the course of the eight-week session, participants will learn about everything that a nonprofit board member needs to know, ranging from fiduciary responsibilities to how to run an effective meeting. Get on Board is free of charge to those who apply and are chosen by the advisory committee.
